The first roses grown in Mogilev hothouses with Dutch technologies have been sent to retailers, the local authority on parks and gardens told Interfax.
All the roses originate from the hothouse built in October 2006. The Netherlands provided their latest rose growing technology along with the equipment, the frames were supplied by a Russian company, while the glass was provided by Gomelsteklo.
The new hothouse is now home to some 30,000 rose bushes, which come in 7 kinds, and were brought to Mogilev all the way from Holland.
The hothouse is fitted with extra watering facilities, proper ventilation, blinds for preventing sun glare on hot summer days and extra illumination for the cloudy days of November.
In May the hothouse provided the first 6,000 roses to retailers.
The rose-growing hothouse is expected to pay back the money invested in 6 years.
